.5%, after looking at the food turns out kfc in asia and china supplied with chicken that contained excessive antibiotics as reporting the administration's sentiment, facing intense competition and forecast sales that were going to be lower, taiwanese chicken, they have been tense competition. here is the part that freaks me out for lack of a better term. eight of 19 baskets of the chicken samples were sent to the testing laboratory in 2010-2011 that contained overly high levels of antibiotics. this was going on for an extensive period. eight of 19 badges, less than half of the badges, that is a good percentage you will get these chickens but too many antibiotics. stuart: that is why stock is down, the china market is the most important market for yum brands. that accounts for the stock rise recently doing well and pulling back because it has a problem with chicken in china. we hear you, thank you very much. the dow jones averages back to a loss, triple digit was down 107 points after john boehner made his presentation half hour ago the dow came from 122 down to 88 down and now back to 105 do
. now, some folks want to trade freedom for security. just go to cuba, you will see that go to china, government runs the show. and through the history strong central governments have always been on display. america was supposed supposed to be different. that's why the founding fathers built in protections for us that's why they encouraged a free press to keep government power in check. to expose power grabs in washington. but now the press is working in concert with the obama administration. no longer do we have a skeptical media when it comes to confronting power. the president's liberal ideology is compatible with the liberal belief system of many media bosses. and so we are seeing a tremendous power grab in washington. that's not being challenged by many in the media talking points admit very few americans understand what's going on and certainly many voters had no clue in november. just remember, every time. every time a new law is passed, even the good ones the state grows more powerful the individual grows weaker. that's the truth and that's the memo. now for the top story ton
authorities in china were testing chicken that was supplied to cfc restaurants for excessive antibiotics there. the finding by the shanghai food and drug administration is, of course, a blow to kfc's reputation in china. they are already experiencing a lot of competition there. the update on this story is that yum has since issued a statement saying that they are cooperating with the government's review of these two poultry suppliers, and as such they do not anticipate to see a shortage of product supply. as you can see from the chart, we were down about 4% from yum. >> all right, thank you so much. we are waiting on president obama's statement on the state of negotiations in washington. the president is meeting right now with majority leader harry reid. they're meeting now, and at 5:00 p.m. eastern we are told the president will make a statement, which we will carry live for you right here on cnbc. keep it here as we take you live to the white house with the president. coming up, my observation on what today's selling is telling us about what's happening or not happening in washington. and in
runs deep. >>> some positive news after the closing. nike. the problem with china, china just went from head wind to tail wind. that's a great research company. research emotion, we decided was not worth selling or shorting. is it something to write home about? it's not bad. what matters is the tone of the market is much better than the tone out of washington. like i said, there's always ait. right here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer and i'll see you tomorrow. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. so a crucial moment for our economy and for our right to bear arms. high drama on capitol hill right now as house republican speaker john boehner looks to pass his plan b fiscal cliff bill in a million dollar tax threshold. votes aren't there yet. that's why we are following this live through the whole thing this evening. >>> and as the president's new anti-gun violence task force starts work, we learn that now outside experts have yet joined that panel. meanwhile, the debate on gun control rages across the country. tonight we will hear from outspoken tv host piers morgan and form
an originator of new kinds of policies. if you take, for example, china policy i think that he may be reluctant to react to a china which is very different from the way it was in the past. >> brown: let me bring david ignatius back. i guess it depends on what you think is needed right now, right? >> i think the world's a mess as kerry believes. he's right. and needs a strong american voice. needs the sort of steady hand that some of these experiences can bring. i point i would make about kerry is that although he often comes across as a stiff, as an establishment figure very form layic, in terms of shall ideas an willness-- willingness to engage adversaries, reach out and try to find a channel to iran, for example, reach out to the palestinians, try to think of new ways to deal with the arab world, kerry is on the more innovative side. so i think he is not going to be a wild radical-- the country will miss having someone like susan rice who is a younger, different voice. but i think that kerry-- it's wrong to think of kerry of just being a throwback to 30 years ago. >> brown: is it clear still

more cooperatively to counter china. so certainly senator kerry, if he becomes the next secretary of state have a full plate. >> what was he like in terms of his personality? i covered him in 2004 when he was running for president in george w. bush and he was not really able to relate or identify to everyday folks, but he has quite a reputation overseas and abroad. overseas and abroad he has a reputation for knowing issue and he has relationships with a lot of world leaders and it was senator john kerry who convinced afghan president hamid karzai to go for a runoff election when the presidential elections were in question and i think he's going to be able to relate to leaders suft as secretary clinton did as a politician when these leaders are having problems compromising to say, listen, i'm in your seat. i know where you've been and run for office before and i think that will serve him well. here in washington, he is seen as someone who is very confident and on top of his brief and also someone who likes to control issues, and such as the middle east. he's someone who drills down
are not as bad with fiscal cliff. china not as bad as we though, u.s. very strong. so nike, if it goes back to 97, it means we're going to have a real bad couple of days in my view. look at red hat. red hat is a technology company that is deeply involved in the cloud. they, too, had a better than expected number, as did oracle in the cloud. so these are my two tales for the trading today, david. if you pick the best of the best and they go down, you'll really have a couple of -- >> when it comes to the so-called cloud play and the use of it in the competition here, is that one of the key names? >> yes, it allows you to manage cloud in a cheap -- an anti-microsoft business. their partner is sales force.com. i'm really using these as tells. in other words, these are the ones where there's natural buyers. as we just found out how good things are. it wasn't like we found out a month ago. we just found out last night. if they have resilience, the market is going to be more resilient than people think. if they give up the ghost, i think next week's going to be difficult, too. >> all right. we'll be wat
